Support Amos' Education!

Meet Amos. Amos is 14 years old, and goes to Kutamba Primary School. He is a Primary 6 student, and loves learning, especially science. For just $250, YOU can make sure he continues to receive free, high-quality education for the school year!


Uganda has the highest number of HIV/AIDS orphans in the world, and many of them live in impoverished circumstances. Most schools have fees that students have to pay. If families cannot afford them, they will keep their children at home to save money. Without an education, poverty will continue to ensnare these children. Although our students, including Amos, are all AIDS orphans living in similar circumstances, they have been given the opportunity to receive free, high-quality education


When you support Amos you are ensuring that he will have access to free high-quality education, as well as nutritious school meals and clean water. Many studies show a connection between HIV/AIDS prevention and education, so it is imperative that our students receive as much schooling as possible. Amos, like our other students, understands that education is the key to a better life for him, his family, and his community! Amos works hard every day in school to achieve his goals.

Long-Term Impact

Education will allow our students to break out of the cycle of poverty, and create opportunities for themselves. Children who receive an education are less vulnerable to diseases, especially HIV/AIDS. They will also be less likely to succumb to the dangers of human trafficking, and will be able to combat the lure of low-wage jobs in the city since they have other options to pursue. They can take advantage of the opportunities to graduate and attend a university.
